This, and especially the above argument about underlying rights to the film make sense. But unlike Charade, One-Eyed Jacks doesn't have a major studio behind it, as you pointed out in this thread, so IA is unlikely to get a takedown demand for it. It also seems unlikely that IA will remove any of the films added to Feature Films that you listed as being under copyright in that thread until it does receive takedown demands.

Yes, it seems little action is being taken with copyright infringement on these films, from either the copyright owner or IA side.

Waiting for a takedown notice on some of these films could be dangerous. Especially in the cases like Charade where the film has been uploaded by an "(at) archive.org" user ID, I wonder what that does to IA's safe harbour on that item.

IA should know which movies have and have not been taken down before. Charade appears to have been taken down on at least two occasions in the past:

Yes, I remember when Charade was last taken down.

At least action is being taken by contributors - k-otic has removed the files for M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Moerder.
